Chapter 471: Not Afraid of a Powerful Opponent but a Lousy Teammate!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Mount Yujing was managed very strictly by Lin Feng. Nothing could enter. Whatever mana that came, as it encountered the Purple Clouds surrounding the mountain, Lin Feng would be alarmed.
Lin Feng sensed that it was someone from the external world who was using the Voice-Projecting Crystal to contact Jun Zining.
As what Lin Feng knew, her Voice-Projecting Crystal could only communicate with one person. It was not her family or the Purple Clouds Sect. It was Luo Qingwu, who she shared a close relationship with.
This left Lin Feng curious. Luo Qingwu had finally contacted Jun Zining at this point after losing contact for 6 months.
Lin Feng left a streak of mana in Luo Qingwu’s Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl, which allowed him to control Luo Qingwu’s body condition.
The feedback he received was not positive. There was no uptick in the condition of the pearl as it remained on the verge of breaking.
Lin Feng could feel that an external force was trying to enter to heal the pearl, but it was still futile.
In this period of time, Luo Qingwu stopped her cultivation and didn’t swallow spiritual energy into her body. She relied on the powers of the petals of the Dual Polarity Flower given by Lin Feng to prevent the pearl from collapsing.
But the root of the problem was unsolved. Luo Qingwu could not continue cultivating and remained in her current state.
Otherwise, she could let the Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl be destroyed totally and continue her cultivation. But her outstanding Innate Ability would be rendered useless.
Her Innate Ability would fall from 9 to 5 points. It was not entirely disastrous, given her high scores in the other areas. Even if the pearl was destroyed, the total score of her 4 statistics would still be 26 points.
But the others did not have the Talent Analysis Device like Lin Feng, thus they could not judge a person’s talent.
To them, Luo Qingwu would become average after losing the Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl. In the future, her achievements would be limited and she would no longer be a leader of fate.
Thus, regardless of whether it was Lin Feng or Luo Chi, or even Jun Zining, they envisioned that Luo Qingwu would not get the same treatment as she had if she returned to the Luo Family.
Lin Feng left that streak of mana so that Luo Qingwu could contact Lin Feng whenever she needed to. This was also a stroke that Lin Feng left behind intentionally.
But who knew that she did not contact him for half a year.
No one interfered and no one did anything weird with the mana he left behind. Her lack of contact was birthed out of her own intentions.
This made Lin Feng curious. But he was only curious. If she was spending her time leisurely, without any worries, that would not be so bad. After all, she was not even 10 years old. In her family, she was pampered and happy.
As Lin Feng thought of this, he allowed the streak of mana to achieve communication.
“Sister Zining…” Hearing Luo Qingwu’s voice, it was confirmed that it was her on the line and not others who obtained the Voice-Projecting Crystal. Lin Feng stopped his mana so that both the ladies could converse privately.
But even if he did not want to listen to them, someone told him proactively.
As he looked at the troubled expression of Jun Zining, Lin Feng felt an ominous feeling, “What is it?”
Jun Zining creased her brows. As she faced Lin Feng, she stammered, “Elder, I…I have something to tell you, but I don’t know how to say it.”
As he thought of Luo Qingwu, he looked at Jun Zining, feeling a little anxious. He appeared nonchalant and asked, “What is it, you can just ask me.”
Jun Zining hesitated, “That…about that, Qingwu contacted me.”
She lifted her head carefully to look at Lin Feng and tested him, “Ugh, Elder, Qingwu, do you still remember her? She was with me on Mount Kunlun and was wearing red…”
“Of course, how can I not remember her?” Lin Feng twisted his lips and revealed a calm expression, “It is Luo Qingwu, I have an impression of her.”
Jun Zining nodded her head repeatedly, “Yes, yes, that is right. Erm, she just spoke to me…”
Lin Feng looked at her quietly and waited for her to follow up with more things.
Since she had already started, Jun Zining threw away all her considerations and asked boldly, “Elder, do you remember that I asked you before whether her Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl has a chance of recovering? That time you said that it depended on her destiny and that it was too early…”
“But now, but now…”
Lin Feng understood, “Yes, my instinct is right. Her pearl has not healed.”
He nodded his head slightly, “That’s right, I did say that before. And now, I have confidence in healing her pearl.”
Jun Zining was shocked, but after the shock she received, her expression became even more complex.
This change in expression left Lin Feng confused, “What is it, you can tell me.”
Although Lin Feng was calm, his tone became more serious. To the people around him, he became more and more imposing.
Jun Zining swallowed her saliva and stammered as she told Lin Feng about her contact with Luo Qingwu.
Lin Feng listened to it and he was shocked. He did not know whether to laugh or cry.
If there was a phrase to describe what Lin Feng was feeling, then there’s only one word that was suitable.
He felt extremely agitated!
Now, Lin Feng knew why Jun Zining was so troubled. He was even more troubled than her now.
His premonition was not far from Luo Chi or Jun Zining. After Luo Qingwu returned to the Ancient Yuantian World with the damaged Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl, before she was even treated with the warmth of her family, there were already people who poured cold water on her.
And as she could not heal the Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl even after efforts to, her status in the Luo Family plunged.
Except for a few close relatives who doted on her even more, her life hit rock bottom in the other aspects.
What made Luo Qingwu unable to accept was the fact that her few favorite treasures were taken away from her. They were given to her to protect herself and aid in her cultivation. Now that Luo Qingwu’s talent was voided, the Luo Family decided to take them back.
But to Luo Qingwu, they were treasures that had been with her since young. In her heart, they were not just a few treasures. This made her extremely sad.
The stroke that Lin Feng left behind should have exhibited its effect at this point, but something cropped up.
As he looked at the traumatized Luo Qingwu, Luo Chi could not bear it and mentioned Lin Feng to his masters. He said that Lin Feng treated her well and had fate with her.
What Luo Chi said was not entirely true. He did not know that Lin Feng had planted his mana inside Luo Qingwu, and could not figure out what Lin Feng was thinking either. He said that to preserve Luo Qingwu’s status in the family.
But in this way, the Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster developed other thoughts.
As she lost her Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl, it was possible that Luo Qingwu might be married off in a related marriage, as a pawn in the deal.
If what Luo Chi said was true, that Luo Qingwu and Lin Feng had fate with each other, why did he not send Luo Qingwu to become Lin Feng’s disciple?
Lin Feng knew that Luo Qingwu’s Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl was damaged. Under such a circumstance, Luo Qingwu was still well-liked by Lin Feng. Maybe the Luo Family could turn trash into treasure and use her to build up a close relationship with the rising Celestial Sect of Wonders.
During the battle of Mount Kunlun, the Aeolus Sect was destroyed. The news of Golden Crow Grand Sage being repressed by Lin Feng spread and the Celestial Sect of Wonders became extremely famous in the Divine Lands. They were also respected by many great powers and touted as the dominant sect in the new era.
Even the Grandmaster in the Immortal Soul Stage that came from the Luo Family approved the suggestion of the other family members.
If Luo Qingwu’s Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl had not crushed, her future was still bright and the Luo Family might have to think before acting on that suggestion. But now that Luo Qingwu and the Celestial Sect of Wonders had built up a rather cordial relationship, such an investment could pay off if it was successful.
Luo Chi kept quiet about this and only hoped that Lin Feng was not just acting in the heat of the moment, that he was really protective of Luo Qingwu and would accept her as a disciple. To Luo Qingwu, it might be a blessing in disguise.
Especially, Luo Chi could roughly feel that Lin Feng might have an idea to heal Luo Qingwu’s Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl.
If things end in that way, then all would be perfect and Lin Feng could get what he wanted.
But the Luo Family neglected the opinion of one person.
Luo Qingwu herself.
Lin Feng’s stroke was about to exhibit its effect. Luo Qingwu had also the mind to contact Lin Feng. Not that she wanted to leave her family, but to temporarily distance herself from the harsh environment she was in and find someone who she could confide in.
But at this time, she realized that her elders wanted to throw her away like a good to Lin Feng and as a gift to build up their ties with the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Although they all claimed to be helping her, saying that this was a blessing in disguise, Luo Qingwu lost all warmth in her heart already.
At the same time, her impression of Lin Feng and the Celestial Sect of Wonders dipped.
She made a fuss and did not talk from day to night. She did not even want to eat. She wasn’t willing to go the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
The Luo Family was very troubled because of her. After all, their main goal was to let Luo Qingwu become Lin Feng’s disciple, to let her interact with others. But they did not just want to send a thoughtless and lifeless person to him.
If she went to Mount Yujing, what she was going to do was just to offend others and act disrespectfully. The Luo Family wanted to form a good relationship with the Celestial Sect of Wonders, and not to bring trouble to both parties.
Thus, things remained in such a condition. As time dragged, many Luo Family members became impatient. The elders were still fine, but for the people in the same seniority level, they were gossiping a lot. The more they said, the worse Luo Qingwu’s situation became.
Hence, Luo Qingwu’s became angry and bitter about this. She threw a bigger tantrum. As for the method of contact that Lin Feng left behind, she did not even use it.
After understanding everything, Lin Feng did not whether to laugh or cry, “Damn it, she looks nice but she is actually very rebellious?”
As for the Luo Family, Lin Feng had the thought of killing them.
As the saying goes, it is fine to have a worthy opponent rather than a lousy teammate.
Lin Feng twisted his lips to look at Jun Zining, “What are the details of the situation now?”
